It's common knowledge that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach, and that's why we think the best possible Father's Day gift has to involve food.
Treat him to a hearty full English breakfast and a good strong cup of coffee, the perfect start to the day.
Or why not tuck into a tasty lunch, with a range of succulent steaks, our special sticky beef ribs or our famous pork belly dish... pint of beer optional...
If you can't make it on Father's Day, don't forget we also sell gift vouchers so he can go whenever he likes next time.
